Dynamic Victoria, BC-based electronica group, Astrocolor, return with a vibrant new song, Renegade. The single is the first from their forthcoming album, Hue, set for release early 2020 via Entertainment One. The song arrives with visuals directed by Astrocolor and filmed by frequent collaborator, Cody Morell (The Runaway), on Vancouver Island. Watch the video for Renegade here.
On the video and single’s inspiration, DJ/producer/frontman, Neil Cooke-Dallin says: “Renegade is a banging old school rave anthem, leveraging the legendary Renegade Master sample made famous in the ’90s by hip hop artist A.D.O.R. The video was filmed by Cody Morell, who also shot our video for The Runaway last year. Cody is based in Las Vegas but came to the west coast of Canada for the first time in his life, to shoot amongst the beauty of Vancouver Island. Our intention was for the 1966 Mustang and ’70s walkie talkies to create the feel of a vintage caper, at once both ominous and humorous.”
Astrocolor will cap off a big year by ringing in 2020 in their hometown of Victoria. They’ll perform a special New Year’s Eve show at Capital Ballroom on December 31. Tickets go on sale November 1 – details can be found here.
Based in western Canada, Astrocolor perform and record live electronic music, recalling the Chemical Brothers, Air, and St. Germain. The band plays on the edges of funky house, Balearic, breakbeat, and ambient, and have been nominated for Electronic Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
Astrocolor have brought their celebratory live show to seminal west coast music festivals including Burning Man, Rifflandia, Center of Gravity, Golden Sound, Song & Surf, Tall Tree, and Atmosphere Gathering. The band has also made debut appearances in Toronto (Canadian Music Week), Seattle (Upstream Music Festival), Vancouver (with Five Alarm Funk at the legendary Commodore Ballroom), St Louis, Chicago, and Costa Rica (Bamboo Bass Festival). Astrocolor’s catalogue of original material has over 2 million streams on the major platforms and a loyal following of regular listeners globally. Astrocolor formed in 2015 and are based in Victoria, BC, Canada.
